Meet the newest reader in the Novel Novice family!

If you’ve been wondering why blog posts have been so sparse lately, there are two big reasons.

1) My husband & I recently bought a new house, and moved in just four weeks ago. We have been busy painting, unpacking & doing assorted projects around the new place. There is still lots to do, but we love our new home.

2) On Wednesday, July 22nd my niece Jocelynn came into the world. She was born just after 7pm, weighing 6 lbs, 3 oz and measuring 19 inches, with dark hair and green eyes (we think; they appear to be changing color). She is tiny & squishy & sounds like a little velociraptor when she cries and I love her SO much!!!

I started putting together her book collection before she was even born (she’s off to a VERY healthy start), and I can’t wait to share all of my favorites with her as she gets older.

So that’s why I’ve been sort of MIA lately — and why I will continue to be for the next few weeks. I AM hoping to get caught up on some book reviews and other posts soon, and plan to relaunch our Book of the Month feature starting in September with Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius.

If you want to keep up with baby pictures & house pictures & other random pictures I take, feel free to follow me on Instagram.

  1. Congrats on the house and being an aunt! I became an aunt recently and got to meet my little niece for the first time a couple weeks ago. They live about 10 hours away from me so I won’t get to see her as much as I’d like to and I can’t wait to see her again!

    1. Thank you! I consider myself very lucky that my brother & SIL just moved back to Portland, and my niece is only a 15 minute drive away!
